This work was created using short wave radio signals, field recordings, dusty analogue devices, as well as samples from "Three Quarter Tone Piano pieces" of the American modernist composer Charles Ives (1874-1954) as central sound source.

Pietro Riparbelli is a philosopher, composer and sound-multimedia artist based in Livorno (Tuscany). He is working in Italy with the Enrico
Fornello Contemporary Art Gallery.

Riparbelli's performances and installations have been presented at D'Amelio Terras contemporary art gallery (NY), Equinox Festival (London),Nuit Blanche (Paris), Magazzino d'arte moderna (Rome), Palazzo delle Papesse (Siena), Flora (Florence), Fundació Tàpies (Barcelona), Base progetti per l'arte (Florence).

He works with performances, sound installations and recorded works and in the last three years he has been collaborating through selected projects with Massimo Bartolini, Nico Vascellari, Philippe Petit, Fabrizio Modenese Palumbo, Francisco Lopez, Christina Kubisch, Seth Cluett, Yannick Franck and others.

He is a curator/executive producer of the independent music label Radical Matters - Editions Label with the new series "Metasound" and he his the curator of the project AEDO "Curatorial and Sound Practice" to investigate the dimension between music and contemporary art.

The work of Claudio Rocchetti is a deep plunge into thick sound, investigating its innermost workings. Using a variety of devices such as turntables, audio cassettes, samplers, radios, and microphones, often incorporating other objects and traditional instruments, Berlin-based Rocchetti builds compelling structures that employ sound as sheer matter, mass, and impact. "I have a very direct approach to sound, trying to act on instruments and devices," he says.
